Opened in 1929, Old Orchard Country Club has a classic design with challenges that stand up to modern golf courses. Throughout the course, you'll see traces of the site's former use as a farm. Ancient apple trees from the original orchard frame many of the holes. The diverse layout will test you with a variety of different shots but the gently rolling terrain makes for an easy walk. Skill and strategy will be generously rewarded but it's not an overly punishing layout for the high handicapper. Old Orchard's greens play true and fast and they are often flanked with strategically positioned bunkers. A stream wanders through the golf course, coming into play on several holes. Golfers will face a tricky island green on the par-5 seventh hole as well as an almost-island green on the par-4 13th.

A Gem!

Lovely old school course. Gorgeous, spacious and really pretty throughout the round. Greens in great shape. A little rough around the edges in a good retro way. Definitely a hidden gem.

Place is a dump. Next time I’ll bring my trash from home. Course isn’t maintained at all. It should be blown up.

Unacceptable Course Conditions

Overall a sloppy course. No fairway on hole 18 due to the course being unkept/ neglected. Holes and dirt patches in every fairway. One of the signs for a hole indicating the distance and layout was broken in half. It seems like nobody takes care of the course quite frankly. $60 is way too pricey for this dog track. On top of it all, the emergency brake on the golf cart was basically unusable. It was hard to park on hills without the cart rolling away. The strap to hold the golf clubs doesn’t work so you may lose your clubs mid round while driving. I do not recommend this course to anyone who is looking to golf in the area. Staff was very rude and unprofessional when explaining the guidelines of their course. Although it is only a 9 hole course, William F Larkin Golf Course at Colonial Terrace is way better bang for your buck and I would rather play their course twice than Old Orchard once.

Nice, relaxed round.

Facilities off course need an upgrade, but staff very relaxed and friendly. Course in good shape. Greens variable (speed), but clean and lush early in season. Will play again!

FRONT DESK Douche

Played in pouring rain. Dude at the desk was so worried about me not wearing a facemask kicked me out of "pro shop" till i put mask on. Should have took it as a sign. Save your 70 dollars and go play somewhere worth it. I paid cash. He probably pocketed it since i never got reciept. And take a new pic of course. The clubhouse looks like it hasnt been opened in 20 years!

This was the first time at this course. The signs were great to navigate the course. The tee boxes and sand traps need some work but overall it was a very good experience.

Has a lot of potential

The staff are extremely friendly, thats really the only upside. The greens are so bumpy and some of them have dead grass. The bunker have grass growing in them. The layout is great this course could be amazing if it was just cared for better. Also the cart's battery was dying. We got stuck on the 18th for about 5 mins. Had to turn the key to let the battery rest. Then we were able to coast back in. I can honestly say, I most likely will not be going back this season.
